This forum is dangerous! After reading all the DIY stuff, I had to make my own. Unfortunatley I couldn't drag my butt out at 1 am to test my new gathered end hammock last night, but I am pleasantly suprised how well it turned out.
Made tree straps, and whoopies too, hope to test at lunch!
Already pondering a diy UQ, tarp and skins too. Last night was the first 'thread injecting' I have done since 8th grade home ec, and now I feel I need to get one so I don't need to drive to Mom's basement when I want to make something.
Thanks to all the inovators here, I can see this taking much of my winter free time!
